    Even the dogs got a souvenir!

    The resort was out of complimentary dog bowls at the front desk, so they compensated me and I was able to buy them in the gift store. We stayed in a Cars suite. Honestly, it was the perfect location. Away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to get all the things we need. Our room was on the ground floor, which made it very easy to let the dogs out.

    Great place!!!

    Check in was easy. They have their puppy packs back so no more discounts on dog room stays, $50 a night. But you receive a food mat, a bowl, pool bags and a cute little gold collar tag. The staff was super friendly and everybody loved seeing our dog. We were able to walk her where we wanted on the walkways and around the pools. We were also able to leave her in the room by herself. There is no breed or weight restriction. They just ask that you leave the doggy room occupied tag on your door as long as your dog is in the room.

    Reduced Pet Fee

    Our pet fee was cut in half (without asking) because they ran out of welcome gifts for the pups. All of the staff also greeted my dogs on our walks around the property. Lots of green space and a lakeside jogging trail!

    Great for the dogs

    The only reason I gave this 4 and not 5 bones is the location… Disney. I am not a huge Disney fan but attended an event there.

    Disappointing first stay

    Room wasn’t ready when we arrived at 3:20pm. Website and paperwork stated check-in at 3:00. They gave me room key and said they would text me the room number when room was ready. They said they have until 5pm not 3. After trying to amuse two dogs for 90 minutes, at 4:55 I went back to desk and they said 'your room is ready, we must have a glitch in system that they didn’t text you.' I reserved a king but room was two doubles. Did not receive stated goodie bag of dog accessories. On a positive note, they waived the $50 pet fee!

    Great experience for the dogs

    Our dogs had a great time at The Art of Animation Resort. At check-in, we were offered pet amenities, which include mats, bowls, poop bags, door hanger, and map that displayed the resort's pet relief areas. Our assigned room was a "Cars" themed suite located near the exit doors on the ground floor of Building #2. The location made for easy access to the expansive pet relief zone. Ample grass and meandering well-lit paths made for enjoyable early morning and late-night excursions with the dogs.

    Great location near pool and dog walk

    Clean room and loved being on the first floor. Made early morning and late night walks so much easier.

    Nice hotel

    Doggie greeting gift much appreciated. Areas for pet relief were in need of mowing. We received NO cleaning service or towel replacement even though we took our dog with us when we left the room for the day. It is nice/convenient being on the first floor. Great area for walking your dog around the lake.

    Disney Magical Stay

    My partner and I decided to go to Disney. We normally stay off property. This time we stayed at the Art of Animation and it was fantastic. Very dog friendly. Toby got a dog bowl, a food mat and poop bags all in a backpack.

    Disney Always Delivers, Top Notch

    It was my partner's birthday and he's been obsessed with the Little Mermaid since childhood. This place did not disappoint! So realistic in fact, our dog (coton de tulear) thought the floor was actually water and was initially not too thrilled. It was like he was playing "the floor is lava" game. It was a hoot... he figured it out quickly though. If you have two-legged children, this would be a great stay for you. Also has a stellar pool area! Very convenient to Disney Springs, not even 5 minutes in the car and only 2 right turns. Lowest pet and parking fees of almost any hotel nearby that I checked. Great weekend!
